Girls Basketball Picks up First Conference During Post County Stretch

After dropping the County final to the Center Grove Trojans, the two teams were back on the court the following Tuesday evening for a regular season matchup.  The Lady Cubs made good adjustments to keep the Trojans within reach early on, trailing just 25-21 at the half.  However, they couldn’t close the gap and the Trojans eased open the gap to 8 after three quarters.  The Lady Cubs played the Trojans even in the fourth, but fell 58-50.  

After the Thanksgiving vacation, the Grizzly Cubs travelled to Beech Grove to take on the undefeated Hornets.  The Lady Cubs were unable to turn back the hosts falling 63-52 to drop their third game in a row.

Finally the Lady Cubs opened up Conference play against the Decatur Central Hawks.  The game turned into a back and forth affair, with the Hawks keeping the game close late into the game.  However, Franklin put together a strong 2nd half to take command and then held on to defeat the Hawks 53-47.  The team is now 5-5 on the season heading into a home game against Bloomington North on Thursday.
